The FBI is claiming to have almost 8,000 phones it can't get into. But there are numerous companies offering to break into these phones. So if the information on these phones is so valuable, why won't the FBI use one of these services? The obvious answer is that they want to force Apple and Google to give them a back door. So the EFF is asking the FBI to prove that they really can't get into the phones or to shut the fuck up.

@rysiek Okay, truth be told - I didn't realize signal-cli existed until this toot. -You just solved my Slack Notifications problem with DBUS. *THANK YOU*

Still blows my mind that gnome-shell is a Wayland compositor and it pretty much just fucking works. No X server managing the display.

OMFG... "A malicious DHCP response could cause the script to execute arbitrary shell commands with root privileges."

STOP READING THIS AND GO PATCH YOUR SYSTEMS!!!

I don't know why I haven't done this before, but I've just configured keepassx to run in a confined, network-isolated namespace using firejail.

@slp Haha nice. Also, when you use Twidere for Twitter you see hash tags trending outside of your bubble

Using Tor to access sites like YouTube, in addition to improving your privacy, allows to see what's trending in different countries. Quite interesting 😃

Until you specify the budget and the deadline, everything is possible.

I’m about to head out to our anniversary dinner with my fiancee but people are WRONG on the internet today:

1. EFF wasn’t alarmist. This vulnerability is real and has a huge impact, mostly from the S/MIME side.

2. GPG is shit and you shouldn’t be using it at all. It only provides theoretical security, not practical due to the entire ecosystem’s failings, despite the core crypto being mostly solid. Not defaulting towards security and leaving things to clients etc leads to a mess like this.

While we're on the topic, can we please implement a markdown dialect in all popular mail clients (for people needing rich formatting) and get rid of HTML? Pretty pretty please?

Just bought a second hand Nexus 5 to install Ubuntu Touch by @Ubports and see if I can contribute a bit to this project.

Webdesign (including fonts) got so bad that there's actually a "reader mode" in browsers now that makes sites look like they did 20 years ago

On the bright side, it's cool that in computing everything has an explanation, isn't it? :-D

So the OOM Killer was jumping a lot in this Fedora powered RPi2. Turns out vm.min_free_kbytes was wrongly calculated to be lower that the low watermark of the High zone. Weird.

Reminder:

That open source software you persist in calling "shit" probably represents man-years, even decades, of work. And you're getting it for free.

Don't be an ingrate.
